2019 Residence-Phase 2-4

A glare-filled picture but paint and trim are all done and it looks great. We also added some width and an overhang to the existing dormers to bring them into scale with the rest of the house and replaced the existing siding, windows and trim. A view of the rear of the house. Trim and siding is wrapped up. Just a little bit left. A finished shot of the upstairs bedroom. The clients did hand-drawn linework on the walls and picked a...

2019 Residence – Phase 2 – 2

Another update at 2109! All exterior framing and cladding is done. House wrapped and ready for siding and trim. A dormer was added at the back of the house to improve the space in the upstairs bedroom. Interior framing and the first good view of the upstairs bedroom looking back toward the existing house. Another view of the new expanded bedroom, looking toward the new dormer. Also framed out are the openings for the built in storage...

2019 Residence – Phase 2

Phase 2 begins! (Honestly we're a little behind on posts for this project so we're going to catch up quickly) This was a project we finished up the first phase a couple years ago. We loved the way it turned out. We added a bit of space on the first floor but the majority of the work was in the master bedroom on the second floor. This phase concentrates on the first floor and opening it up in a...

5235 Residence 3

A quick update on yet another white kitchen by RDM. Drywall is done, lighting is in. Also all the the ceiling and wall changes in the adjacent room are done and ready for paint. The first cabinets are in and you can start to get a feel for the room. Looking good. This project has long since been completed but we haven't had time to get over there and take any pictures. We should have some shortly though,...

5400 Residence

We wrapped up this project a couple months ago and construction is moving along. The existing shed addition was removed and we are adding a new shop space to the existing garage. This addition will also allow more convenient access to the existing garage attic. The project includes a new arbor that matches one added on the opposite side of the house as part of a previous RDM project. Here is the existing rear of the house. The shed...

5002 Residence Update

If you've driven down Wornall into the plaza you might have seen this. The screen wall from the exterior is pretty much done and looks great. A closer view. This was the first time we've worked with this material, DassoXTR, and our first impressions are good. It is a great alternative to Ipe, though it is a little more expensive, it is actually more dense and a lot straighter. The downside is that is only comes in 6'...

5002 Residence

After taking a short rest from the completion of a new curved stair case in the living room (see previous posts under New Stair Install) the clients have decided to take on a new project - the exterior deck. Demolition found some unwelcome though not entirely unexpected things. The existing structure had some significant rot throughout which we suspected might be the case. We didn't realize that the existing deck wasn't really anchored to the ground and the structural support were...
